“75% of IT professionals view the public cloud as more secure than their own data centres” – Oracle and KPMG Cloud Threat Report 2020
One of the most advanced and disrupting trends in computing, Cloud computing is a service that provides on-demand delivery of computing services such as servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, and intelligence over the Internet.
In its simplest definition cloud computing enables enterprises to access and share information on the Internet and reduces the dependency on computers, physical storage drives, and local servers.
Service Model of OCI
Helping organisations build, migrate, operate, monitor, and enhance enterprise applications and workloads, OCI offers its computing services through different models such as Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS).
The easiest and most flexible cloud computing model, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provides enterprises with pay-as-you-go services. Allowing enterprises to scale as needed, IaaS automates the deployment of servers, processing power, storage, and networking. IaaS enables enterprises to have true control over their infrastructure.
IaaS offers the following services:
- Bare Metal
- Virtual Machine
- Object Storage
- IPSec VPN
- Internet Gateway
DNS Zone Management,
Oracle Container Engine
for Kubernetes (OKE)
Web Application Firewall (WAF)
Once an enterprise has decided to migrate to the cloud, they need a service model that supports the complete web application lifecycle. Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) is the development and deployment environment in the cloud that allows organisations to deliver everything from cloud-based applications to cloud-enabled enterprise applications.
PaaS offers the following services:
- Data Management
- Application Development
- Oracle Management Cloud (OMC)
- Integration Cloud Service (ICS)
- Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC)
- Identity Cloud Service (IDCS)
- Java Cloud Service (JCS)
- Business Analytics
- Content and Experience
The need for supporting enterprise applications to meet the growing business demands drives up the cost of running and managing the databases. A PaaS model, Database-as-a-Service (DBCS/DBaaS) Cloud puts together servers, storage, and database workloads onto a shared hardware and software infrastructure. This automates the lifecycle of a database, provides on-demand access to users through a self-service portal, relieves the IT workforce from performing administrative tasks, and substantially reduces the IT costs.
DBaaS offers the following services:
- Bare Metal (BM), Virtual Machines (VM), and Exadata DB Systems
- Autonomous Database – Serverless and Dedicated
- Multi-tenant Architecture/Pluggable Database
